We’ve got family visiting from Seattle, so I’ve been on a bit of a break from work the last few days, though Mark has been busy as usual working on a big order that we’ll announce later (though if you are on twitter, you may have heard). We’ve been doing a lot of walking around and window shopping and Mia’s come with us, like one of the girls, going into shops and picking up and looking at EVERYTHING. I’ve never taken Mia shopping with me before so it was sort of a new experience for the both of us (and a glimpse into my future, especially since we were with Mark’s cousin and her 14 year old daughter). Mia had a ball trying on high heels at DSW in Union Square and she picked up and carried around every little shiny bauble and bling at Forever 21 (we were with a teenager, remember?).
We’re headed out to Long Island for some Easter fun. The girls are very excited to be decorating eggs. I’ve never given them Easter baskets but I bought a few goodies for them this year. I don’t know…I always felt very strange reducing such a religious holiday down to chocolate bunnies and egg hunts. I grew up going to church, but stopped going as soon as I left home for college so it’s not because I am particularly religious. Christmas is one thing, but somehow commercializing Easter felt a little weird to me so I didn’t celebrate it in any form at all. Maybe that is fading. Or maybe it was just hard to say no to the girls when they came upon all the Easter stuff at Target (so much stuff!!!). Hard to resist aisles and aisles of pastel cuteness and sugary little farm animals.
